She is fantastic in The Window, @Rainmaka!

A few years ago Eddie Muller screened The Window at "Noir City" at San Francisco's Castro Theatre. After it ended he walked up on the stage, microphone in hand, and said, "Isn't it remarkable to think that Della Street, the great Barbara Hale, is now in her nineties?" @AryaDark

RIP.

Richard Hatch, Star Of Battlestar Galactica, Dies At 71



Golden Globe nominated actor Richard Hatch, whose career spanned nearly a half-decade, today passed into eternity while surrounded by family and friends after an extended illness. Best known as Captain Apollo in the 1978 original Battlestar Galactica, and then as Tom Zarek in the 2003 re-imagined version, His career started with a stint on All My Children in 1971 as Philip Brent, and put in appearances on series ranging from Hawaii Five-O to The Streets of San Francisco to Baywatch. In more recent years Richard has been featured in a range of independent productions.

In the decades after the original Battlestar Galactica, he had gone on to write a number of novels in the same universe and developed a short film, Battlestar Galactica: The Second Coming. Original BSG series actors John Colicos (Baltar), Terry Carter (Col. Tigh) and Jack Stauffer (Bojay) appeared in the trailer alongside Hatch. His various projects were an effort to keep the interest around the franchise alive and to try to convince Universal to revisit the series.

Richard hadn’t intended to wind up as an actor, he’d often said that it wasn’t something that had occurred to him because he was too shy and insecure. His dream before he discovered the stage was to become an Olympic pole vaulter. When an English class was overbooked in college, he wound up enrolling in an oral interpretation class instead. “It turned out to be my worst nightmare, because I had to get up in front of people and read.” he says, laughing. “I found myself flunking the course because I would choke up. I could hardly open my mouth.” Over time he managed to overcome his fears, and now helps new actors by offering acting workshops in the Los Angeles area as well as during his annual convention circuit. His classes were lauded for their ability to bring new actors out of their shells, and for helping tune skills of more experienced performers. One reviewer commented about Richard and his workshop:

"Richard Hatch is a man of many gifts, not the least of which is uncanny insight into an actor’s true potential and how we get in our own way and block that potential. Richard is both very tough and very compassionate. In just six months of working together, Richard has coaxed performances out of me that I never would have dreamed possible."

Even though it’d now been nearly eight years since the ending of the re-imagined Galactica series, he had continued to host annual Battlestar Galactica panels at the San Diego Comic-Con and DragonCon, where fans would listen to his stories of the series, and of his continued enthusiasm and encouragement for its future.

Richard is survived by a son, Paul.

So say we all.

I did not think Hatch was 71... sad day. In the span of two months we've lost Father Mulcahy and Apollo/Zenk. Those two were huge parts of my childhood.

These happened at the end of 2016, but I thought most probably didn't hear about them. Since we have this thread now though it was a good idea.

Margaret Whitton. Actress, most famous for being the evil owner in Major League.



She was so good in Major League. In the original cut she was actually supposed to turn out to be good.


Alice Drummond. Actress, most famous for Awakenings, Ghostbusters and Ace Ventura.



Great actress. Apparently not happy about being most famous for Ghostbusters though.

Don Calfa. Actor, most famous for Return of the Living Dead, Weekend at Bernie's, and Barney Miller.




Ernie from ROTLD. My favorite character in the movie. He was hilarious in Weekend At Bernie's. Great actor.

Van Williams. Actor, most known for playing the Green Hornet on the 1966-1967 TV series with Bruce Lee.



Only ever saw him in the Green Hornet, but I dug it. He also cameo'd in Dragon: The Bruce Lee story as the director of the the Green Hornet show.
